    Not long after I got baptised in the UK, I had planned to go preach out there for a few years. It seemed like a lovely place then. Not sure I would go now.

    Ray and Cynthia were in the district work and served at the DR Bethel. Cynthia got very sick and almost died (not a flaw of the DR). He was called back from there to be on the GB. They missed the DR so much and the local jws...so kind to them; not so much the admin in NY.

    Take your own booze.

    Never drink from the minibar.

    If you ever get caught out, ask for the finest whiskey that has no chance of being counterfeit and drink a lot of it to negate the effects of the methanol in the counterfeit you drank.

    Educate yourselves so that you and your friends can recognize the symptoms of methanol poisoning.

    MINIMUS:

    I think the only reason this reached the news is because something happened to a celebrity recently.

    There has been bad news and crime against tourists for quite a while and this has ALL been downplayed..I have no desire to go there or to any of those islands.👎🏻 I heard of a murder of a woman in a nearby community who went on vacation.

    A PIECE:

    Some ballplayer got shot in a bar recently. Do a google and see the news articles.

    I had heard about that. I didn't know it was in the Dominican Republic though.
